What a wonderful first day of Spring it was - temps in the 50s, a gray overcast sky, and rain coming! Any rainy day in the desert is a good day because we need the water! Also, I know that on any given day in June, July, August, or September, I'll be dreaming of temps like today!
As I sat at my scrap table and gazed out the window, I noticed that my two bridlewreath plants had fresh, green leaves! They're awake! I love bridlewreath bushes. We had them at our home in Bucks County, PA. We also had gorgeous forsythia bushes which just don't grow well here. At least the bridlewreath can take the heat!
I have a new card to share with you today. I thought I had the frog stamp. I just KNEW I had the frog stamp. I went through all my stamps and it must have hopped away, because there was no frog stamp to be found! So, I ordered one to complete the card I had started. I am such a reflective person. I have ideas bouncing around in my head for months before they all fall into place. Such is the case with this card. I hope you like it. Here it is:
I loved this Basic Grey paper! It was just right for a masculine card such as this. I've inked and distressed the edges, added lots of layers, too. There is machine stitching around the stamped image. The wings have been filled in with glitter glue as is the frog's crown. It adds just the right amount of sparkle! I had to have flowers. What can I say? LOL So, I chose to use masculine colored flowers instead of girly ones.
The next image is of the upper inside of the card. Again, I added my flowers and used my computer to print the sentiment. I love these papers!
Below is the lower inside of the card. Here is the frog that got away! LOL His crown has been filled in with yellow glitter glue. I thought about using one of the gold shades that I have, but I liked the yellow so much better! Again, the sentiment was printed on my computer.
The last shot is of the what the card looks like on the inside.
This card was so much fun to make! I really got into this one for some reason!
This card is available for purchase in my Etsy Shop.
